    So what is Ruley?

    The fashion industry is broken, and we aim to transform it for the future by democratising the way fashion is produced.  We enable individuals to design, manufacture, and sell their own sustainable fashion lines. We’re hard at work building a platform that will provide influencers (or any individual with an audience) access to all of the resources available to big brands, including access to suppliers, a community, and expert insight.

    We believe that fast fashion is damaging to both the environment and to the people who work in the supply chain.  We believe that buying fewer, higher quality items is a more sustainable consumer philosophy. And we believe that by working together with end consumer through product development we can create products that people want to buy - and will value for the long term.
